Exclamation the most random warning light in the world- what is this!?

Hi guys,

I've searched the internet land high and low for an explaination of a warning light that has been flashing for a week. I have no manual and should really get one, but maybe someone here knows...

Underneath the left dial on my punto dash is a flashing red symbol, and i have no idea how to describe it and I cant find a picture of it anywhere. best I can do is doodle it but this forum wont let me post any links yet!
Any ideas?

xxx nikki

Can you try and describe it?

How does it flash? - randomly? or ryhmically?

How old is your car? what version is it?

Automatic transmission fault or fluid overheating. Is the car an automatic?

It may be low on transmission fluid causing it to overheat.

Always best to post what car you have when asking for info.
